Prompt 157: Vellicate

Stacey of The Odd Inkwell brings us this week's prompt, vellicate, which means to

tickle: touch (a body part) lightly so as to excite the surface nerves and cause uneasiness, laughter, or spasmodic movements

  • pinch: irritate as if by a nip, pinch, or tear; "smooth surfaces can vellicate the teeth"; "the pain is as if sharp points pinch your back"
Above is Stacey's poem/image.
